Touch of Nature

I'm taking a break from the "Year After Year" set. But only a short break!! I liked the layout of the pumpkin card and wanted to put a flower in the oval. The flower from the "Year After Year" set would work but it would be a tight fit and I've already made a card using that stamp. Not that I can't use it on another card but I need to get through the whole set before I begin playing with my very favorite ones. The snake is not near the top of the list!!! LOL

I like the "Touch of Nature" set and have not used it very much. This flower is such a stunning one and I wanted to add it to this card. I used the new decorative papers and added a piece of black card stock to hide where they meet. I used the scalloped oval punch and I'm still toying with the notion of adding some white on each scallop like I did with the pumpkin card. This was an easy card to make but I do have one regret. I should have used watercolor paper. It seems that the blender pen soaked into this paper too much. It didn't allow me to work with the colors as much as I wanted to. And I used Staz-on Black to stamp the flower. I am starting to use it a lot more. I always use it when I am going to use a blender pen but now I'm starting to use it when I'm coloring with markers too. I know the black won't run.

Thank you for stopping by,

Very pretty card - I really love the colors you've used, and the green shading around the flower is a nice touch.
